More than 1,000 pets adopted in a single weekend
By the time two Best Friends super adoptions wrapped up last weekend in Los Angeles and Salt Lake City, hundreds of homeless dogs and cats had been adopted into new homes. The NKLA and NKUT Super Adoption events, both proudly supported by Petco Foundation with additional sponsorship from Wellness and Cuteness, are open to our partner shelters to bring their pets so they can find good new homes. Here’s what that looks like.
That’s not the only cause for celebration from last weekend, because at the same time municipal shelters in Florida came together for the first ever Tampa Bay Regional Mega Adoption.
Best Friends sponsored the Tampa Bay event by providing heartworm treatment for dogs who need it and by helping to cover adoption fees for spay/neuter, microchipping and vaccinations. By the end of the weekend, more than a thousand cats and dogs from shelters coast to coast were no longer homeless.
Here are some of our favorite photos from last weekend's adoptions events.
